Fees & Insurance

Counselling Fees

Counselling and psychotherapy are paid for either privately (out-of-pocket) or via your health insurance benefits. Counselling is not covered under OHIP. I accept payment via credit card, debit, e-transfer or cash and provide you a receipt immediately at the end of sessions. I also accept payments via credit card over the phone or via email money transfer. Read more about my fees and health insurance below.

Counselling Fees

My regular fees are below and can be paid for via credit card, debit, cash, or cheque:

  • $130/60min plus HST for individual and couples counselling.
  • Sessions may be extended past 60min at a fraction of the hourly rate (e.g., 90min)

 Insurance Coverage

My services are often reimbursable under extended health insurance plans (e.g., Greenshield, Manulife, and others) which cover the services of a Registered Psychotherapist or a Registered Psychologist.  Before your initial session call your benefits provider and ask if either Psychotherapists and/or Psychologists are covered, how much you have available per year, and when your benefits renew.

Payment is provided at the end of sessions and I provide you with a receipt which you submit to your health insurance provider for reimbursement.

  • Call your insurance provider before your initial session to verify you have coverage.
  • Ask how much you have available per year and when your benefits renew.
  • Ask if you are covered for the services of a Registered Psychotherapist or only a Registered Psychologist 

Psychologist Only Coverage

If your insurance company only covers a Registered Psychologist and not a Registered Psychotherapist then you can still be reimbursed since I receive supervision from a Psychologist. I would provide you with receipts from my supervising Psychologist that you would submit for reimbursement. The cost is $180/hr (incl HST) in this case since you are receiving the extra supervisory services of the Psychologist. This would be reimbursable according to your insurance plan.

  • $180.00/60min (incl HST) if you require a Psychologist’s supervision for insurance coverage.
